If a windowsill is your only option, you can still give edible gardening a try. We don't recommend fruiting crops indoors, but leafy plants such as lettuce, arugula, and herbs make great windowsill plants if the windowsill gets ample sunlight. A bright window facing east or south is ideal for the best growth. Use premium potting mix in containers that have drainage holes—don’t drown plants in a pot with a solid bottom! Water when the soil begins to feel dry.
